When you first fall in love the passion abounds. You make love all the time and cannot get enough of one another. After awhile, however, what was fireworks becomes little more than faint sparklers when you are in the bedroom. Relationships can grow stale as routine takes the place of spontaneity and newness turns to sameness. Luckily, there are exciting ways to put the passion back into your relationship.Step 1
Make time for your love life. Turn off the television and stay offline a couple of times a week to help improve things in the bedroom. Also, don't just make love at night, enjoy a morning romp on the weekends as well.Step 2
Change the way you look at your partner if you have children. It is too easy to look at your husband or wife as "mom" and "dad" instead of seeing them as your lover.Step 3
Dress up and look your best to help incite passion. Too many people neglect their looks once they are in established relationships for some time. Take good care of your skin, teeth and body to keep your partner attracted.Step 4
Communicate your sexual needs to your lover. Let your partner know what you desire in bed and be ready to listen to his ideas as well. Act out your fantasies for extra spice in the bedroom.Step 5
Make love somewhere else besides the bedroom. A change in environment is exciting and can put passion back in your relationship. Have sex in the shower or on the living room sofa for a change of pace.Step 6
Add something new to your lovemaking. Experiment with different positions, use adult toys and watch erotic movies to get things going in bed.Step 7
Be affectionate. Kiss your partner goodbye in the morning, tell him how much you love him, light candles, take a bath or get into a hot tub together, surprise him with small thoughtful gifts. Extra loving gestures can add passion to your daily life.Step 8
Talk about the early days of your love life. Rekindle those feelings that were present when you first fell in love by reminiscing. Look through your old photos and love letters to find the old spark.
